"Vietnam...We've all been there." --Michael Herr, Dispatches

"Vietnam is still with us. It has created doubts about American judgment, about American credibility, about American power--not only at home, but throughout the world. It has poisoned our domestic debate. So we paid an exorbitant price for the decisions that were made in good faith and for good purpose."
--Henry Kissinger in Stanley Karnow's Vietnam: A History
